Estepona is a resort town on the Costa del Sol about 15km west of Marbella on Spain's southern coastline. The town is bordered by the beautiful Playa de la Rada beach, a stretch of golden sand which, along with a palm-lined promenade, runs the entire length of the town. The town has a number of excellent tapas restaurants, mostly centred around the promenade and harbour area as well as numerous other attractions including a botanical garden, museums and a beautiful old town with traditional whitewashed houses.
Costa Del Sol and Torremolinos offer around 300 to 320 guaranteed days of bright sunshine annually with a mean temperature of 18 degrees centigrade, and peak temperatures in high season (June to September) up in the late 20s centigrade. The cooling breezes on the Mediterranean coast take the edge of high temperatures, making for perfect family beach holiday resort conditions.
